A large amount of large companies either have plans in place to migrate to Gmail/O365, are IN mid-migration, or have already migrated to them. It might be that in your sector they are behind in doing this, but Microsoft sweetened the pot a few years ago and Gmail is really cheap to begin with. For the typical F100 company, there's not even a way they can compete with likely "free" from Microsoft and $50/user from Google. Companies are paying in upwards of $125/user for internal Exchange.

Doug Shelton the head of corporate PR claims those numbers are off by a factor of 10+ and at the same time they opened up 15k new positions. They have 435,000 employees right now in total. Mind you a really significant number of those people are IBM Global Services which will constantly have people quitting and joining due to contracts.

Let's say that the rebuiilds CAN cause additional failures, not that it *often* does. I've done maybe 500-600 RAID5 rebuilds and only had two times that there were additional failures, both with consumer SATA/EIDE drives. Most of the RAID failures I've seen have been due to no monitoring and having failed drives for months or even years.
